When her main job was to model gorgeous clothes, Ashley Graham had her pick of the best brands and designs.
But now that she's breastfeeding her son, the body positivity activist said that her wardrobe's much more limited. When a baby is hungry to feed, they won't have patience to wait for their mom to slip out of a fitted dress or high-neck top.
"At this point in my life, anything that gets my boob out of my dress or shirt fast enough for Isaac, that's all that matters," Graham said while recording a recent episode for her podcast, "Listen Up With Ashley Graham. "V-neck, button down — it's my jam. It's definitely modified what I'm wearing and how I can wear stuff."

Since giving birth in January, Graham has worked to pull the curtain back on all things related to the postpartum experience, encouraging parents to love and appreciate their changed bodies, and to feel empowered by all they've accomplished.
While pregnant, she wore sexy and form-fitting clothes that accentuated the changes her body was experiencing. That included a tight red latex dress and a strapless leotard. After her son was born, she showed off her stretch marks in a swimsuit ad.
In a video she posted to Instagram, Graham recently formed a heart around her loose skin and stretch marks.
"This is the face of my greatest strength," Graham wrote in a caption on International Women's Day accompanying an image of her giving birth. "The greatest pain I've ever known and the greatest accomplishment that I've ever achieved."
